Bottle at the Marble in Manchester. Great pub, I left 40 quids worth of beer there yesterday and it was still there when I rang up two hours later. Interesting indeed, like cookies, love beer so I was intrigued. Wasn’t let down, tasty indeed. Looked like the death star exploding in there. Bits everywhere. Hints of cookies obviously, ginger, biscuit, slightly spicy. Sweet, a little gassy. Nice indeed. And good to watch while you’re nursing a bad head like mine.

CapedBrewsader (265) - Brasschaat, BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2008
ZBF 2008: Hazy amber with yellow highlights and quick dying white head. Aromas of speculaas as the name suggests. Also oatmeal raisin cookie dough. A hint of something green underneath the sweet cookies. Flavors of the above mentioned speculaas and oatmeal raisin cookies. Ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, a touch of caramel, and some dark dried fruits. Very sweet with a long sweet and spicy finish.

Bottle. Golden beer with a strong head. The aroma is mulled, spiced and fruity, and the flavour is quite sweet and fruity spiced. Overall a too strong and too sweet beer.
